Reports from Physicians for Human Rights, Human Rights Watch and Doctors Without Borders conclude that security forces stormed the hospital and beat doctors and demonstrators. They also believe that the doctors are tried because they provided medical treatment to protesters. Officials deny the reports and claim that they found arms and ammunition in the hospital.
Anti-government protests in Bahrain erupted after the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt. The country is ruled by a Sunni royal family while the majority of the population are Shiite Muslims. Since the beginning of the protests 30 people have been killed during protests and more than 1,000 were arrested.
